Step 1: The Grip
Step 2: The Stance
So take your hand with the card in it and bring it up so your elbow is facing back and your arm is at an angle and you hand looks like a snakes head with a card in its mouth. Look at the picture. It helps if your feet are separate and your left(for righties lefties use your right) foot is in front pointing torward
your target and your back foot is facing to the side of you. Picture 2 is the foot stance.
Step 3: Release and Follow Through
The follow through is one of the most important things in card throwing. Once you have released the card let your arm keep moving and bring you back leg off the ground. Then don't forget to keep your eyes on the target and see if the card hits it. Then after a few seconds relax and feel happy that your learning how to throw cards.
Step 4: Troubleshooting and Help!!!!!
Forget to follow through.
bad quality or bent cards.
Arms tired(happens to me alot)
Not enough practice.
I suggest playing card company's like bicycle and aviator they are good. bicycle jumbo index and rider back are the best and they will fly really far and wont bend as easily against walls at high speeds.
If your arms tired well take a rest and just ice it for a while. And if your not getting your cards to go anywhere besides fluttering a few feet then practice alot and get used to the feeling. It took me three years to learn to throw a playing cards over my house, across a gym, and to draw blood( dont try it trust me.) and to slice into a watermelon and various other fruit. So practice practice and practice and don't get down on yourself. Thanks for reading and comment. This is my first instructable and i am only thirteen. Enjoy!!!!!!!
